When can we expect the next instalment? first three videos were great.

June 7, 2024 | 4:27 p.m.

11:36 how did you see what they all had?

April 27, 2024 | 6:45 p.m.

11:58 you allow multiple sizes, is there not a more efficient way of doing this in GTOwiz? as in, can we not allow fewer sizes to make our decision making easier and clearer if we got it "right"?

Hey Ben

Curious what you have been working on for the last little while having taken a step back from poker if you are able to share?

idea for your next video:

If you were a small or midstakes grinder in 2021, how would go about getting to the top or improving as efficiently / effectively as possible. Everything from which areas you would work on first, how you'd identify leaks, picking which areas to work on, how you would work on these areas, what ratio of play to study, what your study would look like, any books, tools, content you would consume, etc.

Assume there will become a point where you stop making videos, showing us which path to take would be the greatest gift :)

Hi Luke - at 22:30 you talk about global frequency, could you please expand on this? and the implications on this hand.

Sizing of bet @ 21mins also confused me, wonder if that is relevant to what you are talking about at 22:30...

Post | Asdfghjkl1 posted in NLHE: Effective Pio Solver study

Hi Guys

I have been using pio solver a lot lately looking at scripting, agg reports, looking at spots in isolation - but i really don't feel as though i am getting the most out of my study time.

Looking for how people approach pio study to really learn the heuristics of spots at a higher level, then drill down into the detail?

Post | Asdfghjkl1 posted in NLHE: SRP - SB v BB Pio outputs


I think SB v BB is one of the toughest spots, so been doing some work on this and really struggling with heuristics.

I have exported 4 hands and pio outputs (mix of check, smaller bet and bigger bet) and would be interested in peoples thoughts as to why each option is preferred?

The spots are:

Flop Eq EV Equity EV BET 3 EV freq EV CHECK freq EV
6s 5h 3h 48.89 1.98 51.11 3.02 0.30 3.42 1.79 3.07 97.91 1.96
Ks 8h 2h 58.78 3.13 41.22 1.87 11.54 3.47 75.49 3.20 12.97 2.41
9s 8s 3h 58.54 3.16 41.46 1.84 49.12 3.50 31.15 3.21 19.74 2.25
7s 6h 2s 51.59 2.40 48.41 2.60 28.30 3.30 0.01 3.55 71.69 2.04

Trying to upgrade to the latest version of pio and getting the above threat on my computer which is causing issues.

Is this threat something i should be concerned about? or should i add as an "accepted threat"?

Hi Steve

Really enjoyed the video and i believe it provides a framework for how we can level up the most efficiently

I was wondering, how do we identify which spots we should work on and in what order, as a few examples:

  • is there a "list" of spots that come up most frequently (meaning we need to ensure we are playing these right)


  • is there a bb/100 we "should" be achieving in each spot for us to identify where our biggest leaks are

Not sure if i have worded that particularly well, but i guess i am looking to identify which spots i need to work on most and in what order i should do so.

Looking for a coach to get me to and beating 200z (currently playing a mix of 50-100 zoom).

If you have a proven record of beating this stake or higher, or coaching someone to do so please PM me.

Also, if anyone has a recommendation, please let me know


May 20, 2020 | 7:06 p.m.

thanks for the video, enjoyed it as always.

i know you don't do many theory videos, but your bet sizing is extremely considered, would really appreciate a theory video on what sizing we should be using and when from yourself.

Comment | Asdfghjkl1 commented on R

Great video. a few questions,

how does PIO calculate R in order to show EV?

do you think it would be a useful output on pio to show R? Maybe it does already without having to calculate it?)

Comment | Asdfghjkl1 commented on DTO poker

thanks man, could you please explain what you mean by "conserved" solver results?

Jan. 16, 2020 | 8:06 p.m.

Would be appreciated if you can comment back here or link to response if you do get one in the PIO thread. :)

Post | Asdfghjkl1 posted in NLHE: DTO poker

Does anyone have any experience using the above? how do outputs compare with PIO? any other feedback?

Considering getting it for entertainment whilst travelling, but wanted to ensure outputs are reasonable.

find this very interesting "Yet it seems like the bigger oop bets, and thus the small the spr, the more often we raise instead of calling. For example, if oop is forced to bet pot or check, ip now raises 25%.", no idea why this would be the case, any further thoughts on this?

Comment | Asdfghjkl1 commented on Bandersnatch

hi Juan, how concerned should we be that if we fold the JTs on the turn we are now effectively overfolding ?

July 13, 2019 | 3:24 p.m.

Hi Saulo

At 6:30, you say you block his check backs, could you please expand on this? not sure I follow what you are saying


June 25, 2019 | 8:31 a.m.

paging all RIO coaches, Papes post on what he'd like to see has 18 likes and counting... look no further if you are struggling for video ideas

June 15, 2019 | 1:04 p.m.

for anyone else having the issue you can change back in table graphics from "new pokerstars graphic engine"

April 19, 2019 | 6:06 p.m.

very frustrating, tables are slow, cant resize to size I like and saved layouts are screwed

Thanks BigFiszh, that’s exactly the kind of advice I was looking for and yes I was looking more for identifying than fixing at this stage.

Certainly going to play around with those methods!

Wonder if there are techniques lurking out there...

Feb. 9, 2019 | 1:52 p.m.

thanks Saulo, appreciate your thoughts

I am surprised this didn't get more responses, would have thought a lot of people are looking to identify their leaks through database analysis?

Feb. 1, 2019 | 8:37 p.m.

Hi guys

Simple question.... How do you most effectively and efficiently identify leaks using your database?

Like everyone else I guess, I want to identify my most costly leaks, work on those for a little while, then rinse repeat...

How do we identify them though using the mass data we collect on our own game?

Hi Paul

I’ve been doing quite a bit with Snowie, I am really curious how useful a learning tool you believe it is?

I have read many mixed reviews, the outputs are sometimes funky and sometimes don’t align with pio, all of which concerns me


Jan. 29, 2019 | 6:10 a.m.

at 28min on qq6, could you please explain why do we choose almost half pot sizing?

hi guys

I love starting tables and battling, but have never put any effort in to getting good at hu

any good charts out there that can get me started?
